Premise: ``Saturday Night Live'' cast member Fred Armisen and rock 'n' roll guitarist Carrie Brownstein first cracked up audiences as the Internet sketch-comedy duo ThunderAnt. Their latest project is this absurdist series set in Portland, Ore., that gently pokes fun at the laid-back Pacific Northwest city and the many eccentric characters that call it home. Portland's actual mayor, Sam Adams, also appears on the show, serving as an assistant to the fictional city leader played by guest star Kyle MacLachlan.
Toni and Candace retire; Drew and Andy re-imagine gingerbread cookies; rats consider the charms of squirrels.
Fred has a marriage arranged; a school hires a bully to teach children grit; a man keeps commenting ``Beautiful'' on social media posts.
